Publisher Description

In this personal account, Lilia Tarawa exposes the shocking secrets of the cult, with its rigid rules and oppressive control of women. She describes her fear when her family questioned Gloriavale's beliefs and practices.

When her parents fled with their children, Lilia was forced to make a desperate choice: to stay or to leave. No matter what she chose, she would lose people she loved.

In the outside world, Lilia struggled. Would she be damned to hell for leaving? How would she learn to navigate this strange place called 'the world'? And would she ever find out the truth about the criminal convictions against her grandfather?

"I had a hard time putting this book down. Lilia provides interesting insight into the religious cult operating in New Zealand where she grew up. I appreciated her fair and honest view of the life she was born into - and applaud her courage and perseverance to get out. This book is well written and highlights both the positive and negative aspects of growing up in Gloriavale. I highly recommend this book. "
